Admission Requirements – STNA

 

In order to apply for this program, you must have:

  • An official high school or GED and college/program transcripts (if applicable) on file in the LCCC Records office
  • A program application form on file
  • A health physical admission packet turned in at the Health and Wellness Sciences division (HS 223)
  • In-person registration following college advising
  • College-level reading
  • Demonstrated written and verbal communication skills

Additional recommended (but not required) qualifications include:

  • AHA BLS CPR certification

Once enrolled, students must complete a criminal background check and admission packet, which includes a physical exam with documentation of immunity, a medical expense waiver form, and a non-convictions statement form. All enrolled students must attend to the packet forms and read the information carefully before submitting the completed forms to the Health and Wellness Sciences division office in HS 223 before classes start.

If you are transferring from another college or university, the Records office should receive all transcripts at least 12 weeks before you complete a program application. This ensures that the processing of non-LCCC transcripts is completed well in advance of specific Health and Wellness program application deadlines.

If you are interested in applying to this program, you must:

  1. Complete the LCCC Application for Admission.
  2. Complete the placement assessment.
  3. Complete all Health and Wellness Program Pre-Admission Requirements as specified on the program check list. (The checklist provides you with information regarding the application requirements and admissions procedures for a particular Health and Wellness program. It can be obtained from an academic advisor.)
  4. Meet with an advisor to verify that all requirements have been fulfilled. Upon verification of requirements, you may then file a Program Application.

  
Currently working nursing and allied health professionals may receive credit for ALHN 112, Introduction to Medical Terminology and ALHN 113, Introduction to Patient Care through a Prior Learning Assessment. These applicants would be REQUIRED to complete all other program preadmission and support courses unless a previous equivalent course was completed through an appropriately accredited college or university. Applicants with prior professional experience/training not specifically cited here may be eligible for exemptions/substitutions and are strongly encouraged to contact the program director for an individual evaluation.

Please note: Selection for program entry is competitive and based on a combination of factors including grade point average, performance in selected science courses, interview, composite score of an allied health admission test, completion of program support courses and a writing sample. Only selected candidates (initially based on support coursework completed, GPA, science course performance and allied health admission test performance) will be asked to interview and submit a writing sample.

All applicants, regardless of current working status, must meet the same criteria and are considered with all other applicants in the applicant pool.
